Poster Mania: Guardians of the Galaxy, The Rover, and More
Even though yesterday’s Trailer Round-Up was pretty star-studded, that has no impact on this week’s Poster Mania. In fact, it could be the opposite as this week’s edition looks to balance things out. Most of the films, including The Rover, A Most Wanted Man, What If, Calvary, and V/H/S: Viral, are most likely headed for limited release. However, I’ve also attached a poster for the hotly-anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy and Disney’s The Hundred-Foot Journey.
Check out all seven posters below!
The first poster comes by the way of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. James Gunn’s (Super) foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe also is Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, and Zoe Saldana’s introduction into the ever-growing universe. Check out the Star Wars-like poster above before next week’s new trailer. Guardians hits theaters August 1st. (Source: LA Times)
Since The Rover is currently playing at Cannes, it makes sense it’d choose now to release a new poster. Guy Pearce (Memento) and Robert Pattinson are the biggest names in David Michod’s latest film. Michod is perhaps best known for his last film – the great crime drama Animal Kingdom. Check this film out starting in limited theaters June 13th and wide on June 20th. (Source: Twitter)
Anton Corbijn’s (The American) thriller A Most Wanted Man also unveiled a new poster. Besides the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, A Most Wanted Man stars greats like Robin Wright (Netflix’s House of Cards), Daniel Bruhl (Rush), and Rachel McAdams (The Notebook). Check out the poster above before this one comes out July 25th in limited theaters. (Source: IMDb)
The debut poster released for The Hundred-Foot Journey, too. Directed by Lasse Hallstrom (Safe Haven) and starring Helen Mirren, this one could be worth checking out on August 8th. The film is based on Richard C. Morais’ novel and will be distributed by Disney. (Source: Cinema Blend)
Harry Potter fans: pay attention. Daniel Radcliffe, who has been making a name for himself post-HP, is continuing his filmography with a movie called What If. Formally titled The F Word, the rom-com stars not only Radcliffe, but Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) and Adam Driver (HBO’s Girls). Michael Dowse (Goon) directed the movie, it is set to come out August 1st, and a new poster is above. (Source: Comingsoon)
I’ve also attached a poster for Calvary starring another Harry Potter alum, Brendan Gleeson. The buck doesn’t stop there, though, as the ever-popular Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) is also featured in the black comedy. Calvary is directed by John Michael McDonagh (The Guard) and also releases August 1st in the U.S. (Source: Collider)
One of the scariest horror franchises I’ve seen (granted, I haven’t seen a whole lot of horror franchises) is definitely the V/H/S one. The latest adaptation, titled V/H/S: Viral, released a poster (presumably ahead of a trailer). The latest horror anthology is directed by Justin Benson (Resolution), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), and more. It’s currently slated to come out sometime next year.
Come back tomorrow for the latest photos!
